Michelle Dewberry challenges Tobias Ellwood MP over calls to bring in the army ‘to stack shelves’

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Michelle Dewberry challenges Tobias Ellwood MP over calls to bring in the army ‘to stack shelves'” – below is their description.

Food industry bosses have condemned a “worse than useless” intervention by the Government over self-isolation rules and said confusion remains over supply chains.

It comes after a Government minister said more than 10,000 critical workers in the food sector would be given an exemption to self-isolation rules amid major staff shortages.

Food bosses said there is still significant confusion over whether they will be contacted over exemptions, which workers will be eligible and whether they should apply directly.

Tobias Ellwood MP, chair of the Defence Select Committee, is calling the government to host a COBRA meeting over the problems, with some suggesting the army could be brought in to help.
